Much Different!! Be careful, silkies are a "fancy" breed and come with issues... I am friends with a fairly large breeder and she kinda scared me with the problems she finds! She very often finds them hatching with wrong toes and crooked toe/splayed leg, Silkies also have a soft spot on their head, she described kinda like a "kill spot" on a Alligator, its where the skull doesnt close completely and causes a weakness in the skull overall, so be really careful with these adorable weirdo's!
Also, they get poop stuck in their weird feathers easily XD
